the money that has been allocated for san francisco, it's money that can be used for different things. and the fact that the mta board of directors chooses to use this increase the accessibility of public transportation for low income youth does not mean that the mta cannot, at the same time, turn around and use some of the money for maintenance. that somehow the lack of reliability of the system of an agency that has anpvpx& $800 min budget rests solely on the fact that it's going to make public transit more accessible to low income kids, it's simply not reflective of the reality that has been true of muni for the last few years. muni, to the extent that their issues about maintenance, the reason for that is not because of the funding of these types,%f programs. to the extent thatmine is failing or hasjpn,1 to address those issues, it is not because of somehowqpihb making public transportation more accessible to poor kids in this city. i think it's simply unfair to place that responsibility on that group. we all have ajr:ñ responsibilito make sure that we have a reliable sy

's district as well. i think many of us came into the work of public service to fulfill the government's mission in areas like this, to ensure that we are really protecting, defending our most vulnerable residents, and helping property owners to follow the law. and so this particular case of september 12 of this year, all the violations have been corrected and the building has been restored to a livable state for 48 families that reside on this property. so i want to take this time and acknowledge the members of our city family that actually make this happen. we can legislate law. we can talk about building code. but there are people that actually go out there and make that law reality for the residents here in san francisco. so i want to thank rosemary, james, james, david, and allen davidson. we want to recognize you today for your outstanding work protecting the basic living conditions of 48 san francisco families living at 245 leavenworth over the last three years. thank you for your leadership in abating 423 housing code+nc'p violations and restoring the building to a livable sta
here has a monopoly on caring for the maintenance and the reliability of the system. i think all of us believe that that's a priority, and that's something that we should do. but the reason why the amendments are made, supervisor wiener, simply because there are those of us who believe as a principle, that in reality in fact being for making the system accessible touocu income youth is not exclusive -- mutually exclusive from trying to maintain the system. and that i think goes to the very heart of this point that to the extent that you have issues with what muni is doing or not doing with some things, that predicating the resolution of those issues solely or primarily on whether or not to put this that's the right way to frame this. the last thing that i would say is, as you correctly noted, the board of supervisors has acted before on this. i don't know that there has been any new information or evidence that's been presented here about the pros and cons of this system. the fact is that the folks who have raised concerns about the free muni for youth for low income youth pilot have c
so that we could work from there, we are also using two other properties along the way, for secondary access during the construction and we will in fact have the shaft excavate from and we will put in those shafts all of the vent equipment and structures at the top. and while we do own one of these properties it is different from the original documents where the intention was in fact a vent in the city streets which is what they used to do in the old days in new york and it is not acceptable any more. and the other property down on the corner of third and towns is in fact a new property. and it currently is owned by mcdonald's. we will also do one of two other minor pieces that were not fully covered in the previous document and really being out dated and one of those is the underground pedestrian tunnel which will now in fact we have decided to be a straight shot down beal street to embarcadero station and you can see where you are going. it would be underground, people-mover, with remarkable on either side. and we issued an rfp for this work in august of this year. we received a sin

experience of the taxi company. we are putting together a color scheme ranking system that will give us the ability to differentiate and hold accountable these different companies based on their performance, both with respect to the public and with respect to taxi drivers. an important part of that is that we hope to send out a survey the taxi drivers and asked them about their experience with the company. they are not able to say that in public. yeah not able to testify at a hearing. you were given the opportunity to tell us i feel good about my company or i don't feel good about my company of these are the practices of my company that i wanted to know about we can take the survey results and turn them into a score criteria for the companies themselves and getting the companies incentives to treat the cabdrivers better. or suffer the consequences. it is important. i have to say, there are a lot of people here talking about the pain of this transition. the pain is real. the hard work is real. the professional skills a real. the importance to the city is very real. i don't w

and you are turning it into your own benefit, your own profit, their own use, and the hell with them. go ahead and do it. we'll see you in court. we'll see you in the ballot box. (sigh) i don't know what else to say. you're living it will the other thing i will say -- i hate the comments on the particulars of the proposal i find odious, there is no guarantee on anything here even for those top 150. all it says is that they are entitled to return medallions. somebody has to die or a medallion have to be revoked before they have a guarantee of that the down. and only if his board would later approve the issuance of new medallions to those people could even the tiniest fraction of them ever expect to see a medallion. this is heartless, cruel. this is beyond words. thank you.

in the community. it is a natural thing for us to be part of the survey. on the campaign on seniors and people living with disabilities. i want to mention a couple of things quickly. we would like for you to consider going forward. many of the sros are not accessible. that is one thing. and buildings and floors that are accessible, the preference be provided to people who are seniors and people living with disabilities. it is an important issue for this population. and a needed will continue to evolve. secondly, people who come in after hours at issues. what we hear our complaint driven. that can be challenging for people who put in a complaint and want a quick resolution. we think it would be helpful to have short time line for complaints when there are building or health code issues. particular for seniors. this issues that affect seniors and people with disabilities are pressing needs that need immediate remedy. it is helpful to consider around this population and how they will be able to continue to live here. and have quality of life. and being able to have that experience. with
and in this community are a bubble of disability and none of this surprises us, the reality is that this discussion is a quantum leap from anything the city has had. even in the most recent years, we were not able to get disability demographics. we always staff about accessibility, and they would say next time. a number of people with disability in sros. the fact that we now have senior action network, the last 10 years would could not even get large print. oh yeah, they would see us there. there was never a demographic. if you don't have disability demographics you are not at the public policy planning table. i want to welcome jessica lehman to our community. she has been a leader in the alameda -- for many years. she's here totally on board with senior and disability action. it is huge. welcome. in the last survey we had from hsa, was an astounding percentage of seniors that get out of the rooms per month, 3-4 times a month, 60-70%. an amazing number. something a revelation to me. in 2005-06, i was on a panel in tenderloin. there was an elderly chinese woman in the room. the third person t
began his work on the boycott in 1975. of course those of us who know a little bit about harvey milk know a little bit about his involvement in that boycott. as howard explains it, they came to harvey milk and howard and asked for their support for this strike and boycott and both harvey and howard endorsed it, which was really key to making the boycott successful because howard, working with harvey milk, used their influence with bartenders and bar owners in the make the boycott successful and it was really the first time where you had that very powerful pairing of the labor movement with the lgbt community, and that has become very powerful. howard was on the staff of seiu local 50, and as an organizer and community representative wa one of the first in the country to unite lgbt and labor struggles and educate both movements about the other. he retired in 2001 but he remained active until the very end of his life. and one of howard's greatest achievements was actually the formation[jdf of an organizatn that united both lgbt and labor movements he founded gay and lesbian labor al
think your perspective would be great; i don't think that it fits the seat before us. i think it is hard to find someone for the cac. i am not ready to support to today. i would be open to support you on another seat in the cac for sure; it is important to have young folks who work at the center to participate; you would be able to be inactive, contributing member from the get-go. so, i know this is awkward. >> can i suggest that perhaps before we forward this with no recommendation, it's been close to a year that the seat has not been filled. in terms of the cac, and mr. cohen was not accurate about this. would appoint almost a year ago michael simmons, affordable housing developer who lives and works in the western addition. i think that, it would seem to me that given the time that has gone by, and given that the lgbt center does provide an awful lot of services to extremely low-income people through both the economic know the programs and elsewhere, i would suggest that at a minimum would put this forward with no recommendation and see what the full board t
